Conte Slams Italy Errors

share on:

Antonio Conte has urged his side, Italy to reduce the mistakes that saw them draw against Romania and lose to Belgium.

Italy lost the lead when Sirigu sent a header into the path of a Romania player, who made no mistake and handed them the late equaliser.

Romania was in the lead, but a Marchisio penalty and Gabbiadini’s first goal for Italy, put them in the lead.

But their hard work was undone a minute from time and Conte admitted: “We have to start avoiding these incidents.

“Romania had two shots on goal and scored twice. It’s a shame, as we fully deserved to win this game in every way.

“We were tense at the start because we conceded so early, and then as time wore on we shook it off. I am convinced the lads gave their all, played with intensity, tempo and everything needed to win.”

Italy suffered a 3-1 defeat to Belgium in their previous friendly on Friday, which ended a run of four consecutive wins for Conte’s side.

The Azzurri will play further friendlies against Spain and Germany before Conte finalises his Euro 2016 preparations.

He added: “I was already angry with the result in Belgium, and once again we failed to get the result we deserved. Hopefully it can be a learning experience.

“There are four months to go. We hope there won’t be any major injuries.

“There’s a group of lads who deserve to be here, we have two important friendlies against Spain and Germany, so we’ll see.”
